BEA'S BOOK NOOK "I can't imagine a man really enjoying a book and reading it only once." C. S. Lewis “If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.” ― Oscar Wilde

Sunday Book Share #59


I'm participating in The Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer; Showcase Sunday hosted by Books, Biscuits and Tea; and Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews. These  memes allow book bloggers the chance to share print and digital books they've received, and different posts and events at their blogs.

Last week was a crazy one, a mix of good and bad; the  good - my high school reunion, I won several giveaways, the weather was mostly good; the bad - a nasty stomach bug at school wiped out kids and staff, which resulted in my putting in extra hours ( Not that I mind, but oh the work week was stressful with all the staff out sick), I myself wasn't feeling well but at least it wasn't the stomach bug, my kindle decided to stop working (but is now working again), and then on Friday afternoon my aunt died. This week looks to be busy too but I hope it'll be less stressful.

The Week In Review

Interesting search phrases that led to the blog: "bea all the right moves" No clue where that came from but I like it. :D; "how to catch a cat", "naughty book excerpts", "sweetheart quotes for her", "threesome". and 'tolkien".
